About this Item

With illustrations by F.O.C. Darley Large-Paper edition. Limited to 150 copies, of which this is number 150. Hardcover, 157 pages. Printed in thick, hand-made paper. Bound in full vellum with gold lettering and decorations on the title and spine. Original plain red dustjacket is present, with lettering on the spine. DJ is edgeworn and missing some pieces, but it is present, such as it is. A most beautiful edition, with fine illustrations by Felix Octavius Carr Darley. This edition is a bit of a puzzle – the Riverside Press issued countless editions of Longfellow’s writings in the second half of the nineteenth century. The Darley illustrations first appeared as early as 1879. In 1886 they issued a Large-Paper edition with vellum spines (in 11 volumes). But I can find no other copies of this Large Paper single volume in a full-vellum, limited edition of 150 hand-numbered copies. Evangeline was first published in 1847. This edition coincides with the 46th anniversary of its printing, so it doesn’t even seem like a normal anniversary edition. But it is as nice an edition as you are likely to see. Measures 5.5” x 8”.
